Students create cancer awareness campaign as part of workshop
Sunday, May 11, 2014 the I’lam Media Center hosted their first workshop in the "Culture of Media Consumption for School Students" project which was held in the Amal School . As well as the participating students and their families, representatives from the school and the I’lam Center also attended the workshop, which was run by Rowan Abbas.
The program launched with a speech from the headmaster Mr. Murad Hamouda, who thanked the I’lam Center for their efforts in implementing the project, stressing the importance of the media in our daily lives and focusing on the extent of its contribution to the changing social and political realities. Samah Bsoul from the I’lam Center then presented the project after firstly thanking the school for their support for the project, which they showed by encouraging the students and providing the necessary supplies. Rula Nzazlh then delivered a speech on behalf of the students, which was followed by the distribution of the project completion certificates. There was then a presentation of the information campaign that was carried out during the workshop, which consisted of a video titled "Enough cancer!" that calls for people to stop the advance of cancer in their village.
It is worth noting that the students chose the subject of antennas and the fight against cancer after the village has seen a substantial increase in the number of cancer deaths in recent years, which included the mother of two of the students. The courage of the students in presenting such a sensitive subject and their quest to save their village from the risk of disease should be commended.
The students participating in the project had prepared posters calling for the public to watch the video and contribute to the campaign for the reduction of antennas.
